PostSubject: Advice on covering alligator clips   Mon Oct 11, 2010 10:10 pm

Hi all i was wondering how everyone covers there alligator clips. i was wrapping the ribbon around the whole dbl prong clip but found it harder to get into the hair then i tried only wrapping it to the underside near the pinch grip ( i hope this is understandable lol) and found the ribbon just peals off after a while am i doing something wrong?

I only partially cover the clip as I find it too hard to get into the hair. I try not to have too much on the underside as it will lift in time.

What sort of glue are you using. I use E6000 and others use a hot glue gun. Make sure it is a "hot" not "low temp" and wait for it to get really hot.

Good luck.
